Homeowners today are generally well-informed, and they are savvy enough to recognize a scam when they see one. We wouldn’t dream of selling our valued clients services that they don’t really need. We also hope that you wouldn’t dream of skipping over routine heating maintenance in Chesapeake, VA, because you think it is a scam—or for any other reason. Trust us when we tell you that this is a decision you will regret. Why?
Because routine heating maintenance is, without exception, your best bet for keeping your heater in the best working condition possible. We are going to get into some of the specific benefits of scheduling routine heating maintenance in the following post. Before we go any further, however, we want to recommend that you enroll in our Peace of Mind Priority Membership Club. That way, you’ll enjoy even more benefits to go along with those that routine maintenance has to offer your HVAC systems.
You Can Heat Your Home More Affordably With Maintenance
If you are hesitant to schedule routine maintenance because you don’t want to put money toward a heater that seems to be working just fine, remember that there is a lot of difference between “just fine” and “as efficiently as possible.” Even if the winter is not that extreme, your heating system is going to be doing a lot of work over the course of the season. That will result in wear and tear.
If you do nothing to address this wear and tear, your system may still operate reliably. It won’t operate as efficiently as possible, though. In order for it to do so, your heater needs to be tuned up annually, before being put back into operation. That way, every component will pull its weight and the system will do its job with minimal energy expenditure.
Your Heater Will Be More Reliable
We said above that your heater “may” still operate reliably if you skip maintenance between heating seasons once or twice. The longer you do so, however, the less reliable the heater is going to be. How far do you really want to push your luck?
A heater probably won’t break down right away because you haven’t had it tuned up. As the wear and tear on that system continues to build, however, it will take a serious toll. Eventually, you are not going to be able to count on your heater to operate dependably—especially not when temperatures are lowest and you need it the most!
Your Heater Will Last Longer
A heater is not something that you hope to get a few years out of, like a decent pair of shoes. You want it to last for many years to come, and scheduling annual maintenance is the only way in which you can hope for it to do so. All of that wear and tear we mentioned above can lead to some damages in the short term. In the long term, though, it can shorten the lifespan of an otherwise exceptional heater.
